PSA: go get the "Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro" font

Get it over there If you search for “Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro” on Google you’ll easily come upon a GitHub project with it but it’s a commercial product so whatever you do from there is your own business.

I saw in the CSS that the first name in font-family was a font I didn’t have, went and tried it and it makes everything better. Just grab If one were to get ヒラギノ角ゴ Pro W3.otf and ヒラギノ角ゴ Pro W6.otf, put them in C:\Windows\Font\ and refresh your their WaniKani the change could potentially be observed.


This is a licensed font, not sure if this is legal. Someone probably published it by accident on GitHub.


Hmm yep, apparently it exists since 1993 and comes bundled with MacOS but is a commercial product, so somebody probably passed it through an otf converter and slapped it on GitHub. Now it’s the first result when you search “Hiragino Gothic Pro”. Don’t grab it at work I guess…
